As I wrote about in the post about the potting bench, we were given an old deck and a few other old materials by some family. One of the things we did with these materials was added some privacy to our front porch! We took it from this-To this –I know it’s not the prettiest, but it’s previously used materials. So I think it’s flaws are gorgeous and only add character!! Form and function right there! I love my front porch!!
